From the cover: “Established in 1947, the UBC Museum of Anthropology moved into its present location in May 1976. The building and landscape were designed by award-winning architect Arthur Erickson to simulate a native village setting, with totem poles and Northwest Coast First Nations houses visible through the 13. 7 metre (44. 9 feet) high windows of the Great Hall.

The Museum of Anthropology’s collections include both archaeological material and ethnographic objects from around the world. MOA is best known for its collections from the aboriginal peoples of coastal British Columbia. The large red cedar ‘Ksan Doors, Great Hall of massive carvings, and famous The Raven and the First Men sculpture by Bill Reid are a few highlights. The Museum also houses the Koerner Ceramics Gallery, a unique collection of European ceramics, and collections of Inuit sculpture, Greek and Roman antiquities, and Asian arts. MOA’s Visible Storage Galleries present more than 15,000 objects from around the world for exploration by students, researchers and the public.
